I could tell by the lip. 8's have the flat section under the pedals.

Wash it off? Are you kidding me? It's on the passenger side.....

I picked up a set of FREE 235/75/15 Good Year AT's for the front rims. Stay tuned.

Nope. 4-wheel drums and a big tube bumper!

They're fakes too. I wouldn't be doing much jumping with those weak cast wheels.

Well of course YOU wouldn’t. You aren’t The GruppeB Minister of Safety! Based on all the data I have been able to compile on “breakage of fake Fuchs due to jumping off cliffs” I feel comfortable with my assessment.
Of course if you look at the data for “breakage of fake Fuchs on wheel adapters with Chevy truck lug nuts due to jumping off cliffs” the risk rises a bit but is still within the GruppeB safety risk assessment guidelines.
